Default Too Bloomin' Hot!

I've had a few batches of juvenile gray squirrels around my house this summer. Watching them and their antics has been a kick. It's been super hot here lately and I took this pic of two of them "beating the heat" and "having a snack" on my deck. Usually, they are racing around at top speed and are tough to get pics of. This one isn't very good, but it made me smile.

Thanks Nile Lily and MindyMouse. I've got so many silly squirrel pics it's unreal. They are always entertaining.

Here's a mother red squirrel. I was between her and the feeder and she let me know. This was one of my first pics with the FZ35, so I'm kind of partial to it
